I need to brush up on some of this, found out I’m getting new servers so I can put an XCP-NG system into production.

Either a host of VM Ware admins will be out of work or will be learning something new. Anyway business should be good as the middle of the SMB space moves to other V-hosts.

I did price out XO, and it kind of puts itself out of reach for me, and I’m sure XOSAN will be even farther. I’ll have to see if they offer educational discounts. My only other choice would be Hyper-V because we already pay a ton of money for Microsoft licensing and I’m sure we have a few licenses left over.

It looks promising but I’d be interested to see compatibility with typical external backup systems like storagecraft in terms of VM restoration.

What does RBAC look like? Can you partition XCP-NG/XOA in a way that Active Directory Groups can be used to deliniate access to VMs (Dept1 Manages Dept1 VMs, Dept2 Manages Dept2 VMs). Other components of the VM (such as what VLANs can be attached to a VM), SnapShot Management.

etc etc…

This use case would be a Central Cloud Mgmt team hosting disparate department IT infrastructure VMs.

Also, what about vmWare VSAN customers. Is there an analog in teh XCP-NG ecosystem?

Must not have been listening the first time around when you spoke to RBAC and XO-SAN. Very cool
